As e-scooters gain popularity, safety concerns rise amid eased rules

The popularity of electric scooters is rapidly growing as a means of fast transportation in congested traffic or for short distances such as between buildings on college campuses. An increasing number of companies are also offering shared personal mobility services by providing e-scooters.

Such a hike in the use of e-scooters has consequently brought a large number of accidents involving their users. However, the government is moving to apply less regulations, thereby raising safety concerns.

Last month, two high school students in Incheon were riding on a single e-scooter together when they crashed into a taxi at an intersection, killing one of them. According to the police investigation, they were unlicensed and not wearing any safety equipment.

Does your city have these scooters on the street, Omona? I can't remember the last time I saw them. Bird has seen a reported 90% user decline in my city. And in March Lime's CEO announced they were pausing services in all markets except South Korea.

I want to thank my son for making me a proud mother," Sayuri wrote in English on Instagram, Monday. "I would like to thank you all. I will devote myself, as someone who has been self-centered so far, to my son from now on," she wrote in Korean and Japanese.
